Over the past two decades, India has seen an impressive economic growth and prosperity however despite its economic boom benefits are not reaching the people. According to a report entitled -- State of World’s Mothers- 2013 -- by a charity "Save the Children, over 300 thousand babies die within 24 hours of being born in India. Other than infections and other preventable causes cited there, the charity has blamed the crisis on lack of political will and funding. The report says a decade of rapid economic growth has not benefited those most in need.
